The LA Galaxy announced today that Sean Franklin, Bryan Jordan, and Adam Cristman had re-signed with the Galaxy. The club also announced that they had signed goalkeeper Nick Noble and forward Pat Noonan. Franklin and Jordan were re-signings with new contracts, while the club exercised Cristman's option, after originally deciding not to.

Nick Noble was drafted by the Galaxy in 2007, but has spent the last two seasons in the with Ljungskile SK of the Swedish Supertan. Noonan was selected by the Galaxy in the second round of the re-entry draft. He played in nine games for the Sounders last year, and has scored 41 goals in his nine year MLS career.

So let's take another look at the roster, and remember, this is all unofficial but based off the best information available. Those with question marks have no released a decision or have signed new contracts whose monetary value is not yet known. The salary cap roster first:

Player Name Player Cap Salary
David Beckham ?
Landon Donovan $2,300,000.00
Robbie Keane $2,917,241.40
Chad Barrett $192,000.00
Marcelo Sarvas ?
Chris Birchall $144,000.00
Todd Dunivant $135,000.00
Omar Gonzalez $120,000.00
Mike Magee $102,850.00
Sean Franklin $97,389.00
Nick Noble ?
Frankie Hejduk $96,000.00
Leonardo $90,000.00
Juninho ?
Pat Noonan ?
Josh Saunders $63,222.00
Michael Stephens $57,750.00
A.J. DeLaGarza $55,110.00
Miguel Lopez $45,000.00
Adam Cristman ?

So it looks like a full 20 man roster. Now, the Galaxy haven't taken Juninho off the roster yet, so that space may be clearing up January 1st as well as David Beckham's. I'm in no rush to take either player off the roster. And the non-budget (reserve league) players:

Player Name Player Base Salary
Brian Perk $71,250.00
Jack McBean $55,000.00
Bryan Jordan $42,000.00
Paolo Cardozo $42,000.00
Dan Keat $42,000.00
Sean Alvarado $32,604.00
Hector Jiminez $32,604.00
Dustin McCarty $32,604.00
Ryan Thomas $32,604.00
Jose Villarreal ?
Open Slot $35,000 (allocation)
